|Another injury-plagued season cost Hunter Henry four games in 2019 and left him less-than-full-strength in many of the games he did play in. Still, Henry finished the season as the fantasy TE8 overall with 55 receptions for 652 yards and five touchdowns. He did that in his first season back after suffering an ACL tear in 2018.
Unfortunately, the Chargers offense just isn't likely to be particularly high-powered this season, which could lead to fewer red zone opportunities for Henry and thus cap him as a mid-level TE1. He's still young at just 25 years old, however, so the best of Henry may still be to come. Don't look for him to make that jump into the elite TE1 tier, however, as the players in that range are catching closer to 100 passes for 1,000-plus yards and oftentimes push for double-digit touchdowns. Henry is good and may have the physical ability to be at that level, but he's just not in a situation where he's likely to produce that kind of end-of-season numbers.
| Gametime decision for Keenan Allen|
Mixed reports on status

FFToday's Take: Adam Schefter is reporting that Allen is not expected to play. Allen ended up being active last week but didn't see the field very much and ended up being a fantasy dud posting 1 catch for 17 yards. Even if gets cleared to play, it will be hard for fantasy owners to trust this situation. With Hunter Henry out, we could see a lot of pass work going to Austin Ekeler.

FFToday's Take: Henry has been one of the better fantasy tight ends this season currently sitting as the TE7 in PPR leagues. In his absence, the Chargers will likely turn to Donald Parham but he'll be more of a TE2 option against the Broncos.
